    Dujiangyan Panda Base
    Stop: 6 hours - Admission included
    In the early morning (about 07:10), your tour guide and driver will pick you up from your hotel within the 3rd ring of Chengdu and drive to the Dujiangyan Panda Base to check into the volunteer program. You will get a uniform, gloves, and a volunteer’s ID card for the day. Your guide will introduce you to the professional panda keepers who look after these majestic creatures. These panda keepers speak very little English; however, your guide will be there for you at all times to translate and taking memorable photos of you. Your volunteering program itinerary: 9:00am–10:00am Clean the panda enclosures Panda keepers need to supply fresh bamboo to these national treasures three times each day. The pandas usually eat only 30% of the bamboo, wasting 70% of it. You will need to sweep out the leftovers, replace it with fresh bamboo, and clean out the feces. 10:00am–11:00am Take a break and tour around the panda base Have a relaxing walk in the well-paved base and listen to the legendary stories of these pandas. You will also have a chance to meet four naughty red pandas. 11:00am–11:30am Feed a panda Pandas are supplied with panda cakes, apples, and carrots four times a day. The panda keepers will show you how to feed a panda with your own hands at close proximity. 11:30am–1:00pm Have lunch and a rest in the base 1:00pm–2:00pm Watch a panda movie that lasts for about 40 minutes You will see a special documentary about how the shy pandas mate, give birth, grow up, and are returned to the wild. 2:00pm–3:30pm More cleaning and feeding, and making panda’s cakes The bamboo you supplied in the morning will have become dry by the afternoon. Remove it and replace it with fresh bamboo. Then feed the pandas with some more panda cakes and apples. Having fed the pandas with panda cakes, aren’t you curious as to how they are made? It is time to make some panda cakes with your own hands. The ingredients will be prepared in advance. Get creative about the shapes of the cakes. 3:30pm–4:00pm Get a certificate, and drive back to Chengdu
